PREFACE. 

^ypjIIS BOOK^ with the list of the battles^ skirmishes and en- 

\ gagements of the war with the States of the North and 
/ South, frotn 1861 to 1865, is intended for the convenient use 
of those who took a part in those bloody battles. It shows the 
number and names of the Getierals, as v)ell as those of the Lieu- 
tenant- Generals, and the States from which they were selected. 

It also gives the number of the Brigadier-Generals, and the 
States from which they iiiere selected. It gives the number of bat- 
tles and skirmishes ; where fought, and their date as recorded in 
Washington, all of ichich are arranged alphabetically, with the 
States also so arranged. 

It shows by name that there xoere fought from 1861 to 1865, 
sixteen hundred and eighteen battles and skirmishes, and there 
were in all eighteen hundred and eighty -tioo battles fought, but 
the names of some could not be gotten. 

There were only eleven States vihich seceded frotn the Union, 
and yet there were twenty-two States and Territories, with the 
District of Columbia, in which battles loere fought. 

Every soldier who fought in the war with the States should 
from this record book note the engagements in %ohich he took part. 

In after years it toill be a happy reflection tohen he can revert 
to those days in which he served his country. 

Many of the soldiers whose evening shades of life are growing 
long are having their army records writteti up that they may be 
handed doxon to future generations, which will be esteemed more 
highly than great riches.

Record of Confederate Generals. 



Relative Numbers in both Armies. 



Number of white males in the Northern States 

in 1861 subject to military duty, - - 4,559,872 

Number of colored troops enrolled, - - 99,337 

Number of white troops from Southern States in 

U. S. Army, 86,009 

Number of Indians in U. S. Army, - - 3,530 



4,748,748 



Number of white males in the Southern 
States subject to military duty in 
1861, 1,064,193 

Number of troops from Northern States 

enrolled in Confederate Army, 19,000 

1,083,193 



Number in Union Army and subject to enroll- 
ment over and above the Southern States, 3,665,555 

It will be seen from the reports in the War Department 
at Washington, that there was a vast difference between the 
two armies as to numbers. 

The Union Army is put at the enormous fig- 
ures of - - 2,800,000 

The Confederate Army at the small number, 600,000 



A total in favor of U. S. Army - - 2,200,000 

With this difference in numbers, the war lasted only four 
years, as all the Confederate ports were blockaded, and the 
Confederacy was not able to recruit from Europe, Asia and 
Africa, and the islands of the seas.

Gen. Lee's Farewell to His Army. 



Headquarters Army of Northern Va., 

April 10, 1865. 

After four years of arduous service, marked by unsurpassed 
courage and fortitude, the Army of Northern Virginia has 
been compelled to yield to overwhelming numbers and re- 
sources. I need not tell the survivors of so many hard 
fought battles, who have remained steadfast to the last, 
that I have consented to this result from no distrust of 
them, but, feeling that valor and devotion could accomplish 
nothing that could compensate for the loss that would have 
attended the continuation of the contest, I have deter- 
mined to avoid the useless sacrifice of those whose past ser- 
vices have endeared them to their countrymen. 

By the terms of the agreement officers and men can re- 
turn to their homes, and remain there until exchanged. 
You will take with you the satisfaction that proceeds from 
the consciousness of duty faithfully performed; and I earn- 
estly pray that a merciful God will extend to you his bless- 
ing and protection. 

With an increasing admiration of your constancy and 
devotion to your country and a grateful remembrance of 
your kind and generous consideration of myself, I bid you 
an afifectionate farewell. 

R. E. LEE, General.

The above records were gotten up by the Confederate 
Diploma Company, of 626 East Broad street, Richmond, Va. 
It is a beautiful design 22x30, and is surrounded by the 
principal Confederate leaders, such as Lee, Jackson, Forrest, 
Price, Hampton, Maury and others. 

Every soldier should have his record artistically written 
by this Company, which makes a beautiful adornment for 
the parlor. A great many old soldiers are having this done 
that they may hand it down to posterity, that the future 
generations may know of their gallant deeds done from 
1861 to 1865. 

All who desire to have this done can do so by addressing 
the Confederate Diploma Company, 626 East Broad street, 
Richmond, Va.
